Learning level: All levels

Trade-marks, trade names, and brands are extremely important in commerce to help businesses and their products and services stand out from those of competitors. They serve as an indicator of origin and source of the products and services with which they are associated. Business value and revenue can be generated through the proper use and/or licensing of trade-marks. By attending this seminar, you will learn how to:

  • acquire trade-mark rights
  • protect the exclusivity and goodwill of those marks
  • take steps to prevent infringement and unfair competition

This is the 4th/last course in the Intangible Business Assets Series, a 4-part CLE-TV series on trade-marks and brands, reputation and goodwill, confidential information, designs, and inventions that will help you to advise your clients on how to get ahead and deal with problems like:

  • a former employee uses confidential information (trade secrets, customer lists, etc.) to compete with your client's business
  • a vendor uses its knowledge of your client's technology to compete with your client or do work for the competition
  • your client wants to sell their business, but discovers that their software is legally owned by the programmer who wrote the software program

Other sessions in the Intangible Business Assets Series are:

I.   Confidential Information & Trade Secrets
II.  Protecting and Using Patents & Designs
III. Protecting and Using Copyright

Law Society of BC CPD Hours: 1 hour This course will NOT involve aspects of professional responsibility and ethics, client care and relations, and/or practice management.
